Look what I found!!
GLOW IN THE DARK BUBBLES
Things You'll Need:
3/4 cup liquid dish washing detergent
4 tablespoons glycerine
4 1/2 cups water
fluorescent highlighter pen (yellow, green or orange)
plastic container with lid
Mix together the liquid dish washing detergent, water and glycerine in a plastic container; set aside.
Carefully cut the highlighter pen in half with a sharp knife. Don't cut through the coloured ink soaked felt - that is what is going to give the glow and dark colour to your bubbles. For best results, use yellow, orange or green highlighter pen colours.
Skim of any foam from the top of the soap/glycerine/water mixture that is resting on the surface.
Place the ink felt from the highlighter pen into the mixture; let soak for at least an hour. With a gloved hand, remove and discard the felt.
Shine a black light over the soapy mixture a few minutes for even a better effect. Keep container covered with lid while not in use.
I have a husband (Hot Hubby) who writes here too and two girls (Scrumpy and Bear), both of whom have severe autism and epilepsy. In 2005 we sold our computer services business and house to move 612 miles north to The Scottish Highlands. We now live in the backend of nowhere, where we try to manage the chaos of life and keep smiling through the challenges.
